Hardback. SIGNED. Foreword by Keith Skinner. The remarkable true story of Florence Maybrick, the wife of the alleged author of the 'Ripper Diaries', James Maybrick. In 1889, Maybrick died, apparently as a result of arsenic poisoning. In a notorious and highly unsatisfactory trial, Forence was charged with his murder and sentenced to death. Reprieved dramatically at the last minute, she spent 15-yrs. in prison under horrendous conditions, then died in America in 1941. Was Florence set up? Was Maybrick's death and Florence's subsequent arrest related to the Ripper murders? Did Maybrick in fact die from arsenic poisoning at all? Florence's turbulent life - her marriage to a man now widely believed to be JtR, her scandalous affairs, her arrest for murdering her husband, her sensational trial - is the stuff of high drama. A fascinating historical re-evaluation of one of the most extraordinary true crime puzzles of all time. Illus., References, Bibliog. and Index. 236pp. 8vo h/back. Vg. in Vg. dw. With tipped-in labels SIGNED BY ANNE GRAHAM AND KEITH SKINNER.
